  • Unify all the elements you’ve learned to create a more mindful practice
  • Learn how to use concepts from The Power of Now to strengthen your teaching and your personal connection to the practice

Yoga as Primary Care Online

08:00 - 18:00

InfoAdd
Yoga as Primary Care Online

Primary care medical providers (PCPs) are generally the first experts people contact when they get sick. A PCP functions both as an educator and a guide to help patients find solutions to their health challenges. Unfortunately, too often conventional docs focus more on presenting the solutions than empowering their patients. Introducing yoga into the current primary care medical practices has the potential to create a shift in our healthcare system toward such empowerment. Healthcare professionals, as well as the yoga instructors and yoga therapists, will benefit from this one­-day intensive training.

What you will learn:

  • How the current medical provider model works, its shortcomings and its benefits
  • How therapeutically oriented yoga can support and enhance the primary care model
  • The most effective ways to bring the holistic teachings of yoga and meditation together with conventional primary care medicine
  • Practical tools necessary to bring yoga into medicine and dramatically alter the direction of healthcare for future generations
